The Tequila Express Train takes thousands of partiers annually from Guadalajara to Amatitlan for tours of local distilleries. In this true narrative, you will learn how Mexican hospitality mixed with unlimited tequila in a speeding train results in an unforgettable experience for many; while for an unfortunate few – one that they cannot even begin to remember.

Other tales explore Mexican beer, tequila – from rocket fuel to premium labels costing $1,000 of dollars a bottle. Angeles touches on Mescal, Damiana liquor – the Aztec Viagra, international award-winning wines available only in Mexico, Cuban cigars and rum. In this highly entertaining book – you will get a taste of what to drink, how to drink it and what not to drink when in Mexico.

The Last Bullfight – by author David de Los Angeles



 A toro escapes a bullfight, crosses the border causing an international incident between the USA and Mexico.  The citizens of each country fearing the other will kill the bull, are demanding possession. The story involves comedic scenes of the military trying to locate it, the Presidents of two countries sparing over it, bull fighting as black comedy and a lazy-assed reporter who can’t stay out of trouble.

The reader will be cheering for the bull as it gets in and out of trouble leaving chaos in its wake on both sides of the border.

Mexico’s Copper Canyon by Hummer for Balderrama Hotels, Sinaloa Mexico

Sinaloa Mexico – Story – Published in numerous newspapers and online.

The Aztec yellow Hummer plunged into the river torrent with the confidence of a Bradley tank, dislodging rocks and small boulders in the process.   We hardly noticed the water rushing past the doors, or the holes underwater big enough to swallow a Jeep, as we indulged in Mexican pastries and strong Chiapas coffee thoughtfully provided by the Mirador hotel’s concierge.  Let nature dare get in the way of this Eco-expedition….

Mayan Princess – Puerto Vallartya (Gayot Restaurant review)

Explore, experience and indulge in Oaxacan cuisine at Mayan Princess restaurant.  Oaxaca is Mexico’s Garden of Eden where a myriad of varieties of food crops, herbs, spices, (cocoa), wildlife and seafood abound.

Chef Juan Gonzalez lived among the areas indigenous peoples studying their food and cultures…  His rich and flavorful traditional Mole’ (mol-lay) sauces can take 2 days to prepare out of dozens of ingredients.   I tried the Mole’ Negro Artesanal served with honey baked duck.  The duck was succulent and the spicy chocolate Mole’ – thick and delicious.  In Oaxacan cooking, the sauce IS the focal point.  What’s underneath is secondary…..

Interview with Surf Legend Mike Doyle   (essay/interview – Destino Magazine)

In Mike Doyle’s autobiography ‘Morning Glass’ he tells of his first ride on a surfboard as a 13-year-old gremmie. “Tiki Mike” caught and rode the wave, then bailed into the water spread-eagled and got whacked in the nuts by the heavy mahogany board.  And he’s never stopped loving it….

….When the surf was down – creative play would often set in.  Doyle and his buds experimented – inventing surf wax in the back yard, made board shorts of boat canvas, acted in early surf movies, and designed and shaped surfboards.  Doyle invented the soft surfboard and the snowboard, both ultimately providing fun and excitement for millions.

 Mexican Rustic – Furniture Salsa  (Los Cabos Mag.)

Mexican Rustic furniture involves elements of Native Indian, Spanish Colonial, Arabic, Mexican Ranchero and sometimes – even Chinese influences.  Americans view it as Southwestern or Santa Fe style while Mexicans view it as a national style.

Mexican rustic furniture is made primarily from soft Mexican pine that grows abundantly in the Sierra Madre mountains near Durango and Chihuahua.  Tarahumara and Tepehuane Indians inhabited the land for centuries prior to the arrival of the Spanish.  After the conquest, the Spanish Crown instigated lumber and furniture production in the region utilizing indigenous Indian labor….

….Today over 500 years later, the tribes are still at work producing wood products on their reservations with demand growing due to the popularity of the furniture in the USA and at home in Mexico.

New Mall Opening Soon In San Jose…   What new mall?

(Discover Los Cabos)

Driving down the four-lane into San Jose del Cabo you pass right by it – hidden away behind Waldos, Burger King and Leys Market are twenty-five more new stores slated to open (God, hurricanes and workers willing) before year-end.

This project should get an award for being the slowest construction project on record.  For over two years the project has been stalling and crawling its way to completion.  It has survived a sale, investor finance changes, a difficult hillside building site, architectural design changes, workers lost in a Mexican time-warp, and a couple of near-misses from hurricanes…
